Ready, Set, Food! products follow all FDA guidelines with regard to heavy metals and to ensure this we have independent third-party labs test our products. Metals are found in the earth’s soil, some naturally and some through environmental contamination. Foods may also be exposed to heavy metals during the manufacturing and packaging processes.(1) Because of this, nearly all foods may contain some level of heavy metals. However, through rigorous processes and diligent lab testing, our products exceed the safety standards that organizations like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) establish.
